My 2003 C240 is not moving Forward or in reverse


Asked by Feb 27, 2014 at 05:05 AM about the 2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 4 Dr C240 4MATIC AWD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey guys, So i bought the car used last year November. Since then i notice my car
hesitates when accelerated but eventually will move, No check engine light but a ticking
sound fro the drivers side. being a girl i thought i was not warming up properly.
Yesterday on my way home i stopped at a restaurant for a 5 mins and when i came out
and tried to reverse, My car turned on and started to move back but stopped. i tried
going forward it went a little and then it just felt stuck. i had to get it towed because its
not moving at all . Its at the mechanic and i will be going there this A.m but i don't want
to be tricked being a female

Hard to say, the ticking could have been many things. Is the reverse issue related to it? Not sure without looking at it. But let's hope the mechanic will be fair.


Sound like the transmission is going out,drive & reverse are the same gear.
